First time poster..
Grew up shooting an A-5, now getting back to my roots. Bought this A-5 Magnum on GB, will get it out of jail this week. From what I can tell it's a 1961 gun. Has a 26" barrell with a Colonial Arms skeet tube.
I bought a A-5 rebuild kit from MGW (springs, friction rings,et al). Planning on a plain barrel snap on Hiviz sight. Also will buy a steel rated IC tube from Colonial Arms. It's a belgium barrell, but appears to have been cut and fitted with a choke tube. I figure if it goes bad I'll have to get a jap barrell, but hope it works as is.
The mag cap has a unthreaded hole where the sling attachment would go. Is the correct, or do I need to get on with a threaded hole? Never had a sling on an A-5, but appreciate a sling when in the marsh.
Love this site...Thx in advance for your comments and suggestions....Stevehttp://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewIt ... =248075777
